Nobody stopped him from doing this. I've watched quite a few YouTubes from performers that have placed their works there. Nobody has stopped them.
And?Ever notice the indy explosion, and how it coincides with ftp and youtube?
I've only seen actions to reign in piracy. Now I understand the arguement of give them an inch and they will take a mile......I do. We see that concerning getting onto an airplane today. I've simply seen nothing they have done that would reign in the internet outside of piracy which I believe should be stopped. (as much as possible). On the other hand, many who want the government not to take these sorts of actions are the reasons they are.So, yes, I DO support having some copyright protection. I have no right to get up on stage, and sing "Beyond the Sea", and try to claim it as my own, and make money off of it. It's not mine, that's fraud. But the sort we are getting is NOT BEING WRITTEN by our lawmakers...it's being spoon fed to them by the industry it would prop up. I have a problem with this. The internet is the last frontier of freedom left to this planet. It's the last place where I can scream "BOOOOOMB" and not get arrest, it's the last place I can post anything I want, and not be arrested, or detained, or bring down the domain wherein I posted. So, I will never support things like SOPA, or some of the many other forms or restrictions proposed in recent years, to try to "reign" in the internet.
